    Lucky ****. I was 1-****ing-80 when I got back from Denver (whenever that was. RTT live posted my entire drive. Less than two days ****es. I'm a beast. But yeah, October iirc?) Big part of the reason I came back. Lost 40 pounds there cause my bro ****ed me over and I ate nothing but Easy Mac for like 6 months. True I worked at a Mexican Restaurant there and true I love Mexican food but.....omg. I was their main delivery driver. I have no idea how I made money. El Costello. They used to try to force me to eat their food. Did so twice. Can't-go-wrong soft tacos once and arguably my favorite dish of all time, cheese enchiladas. I'll Just say this and I need say no more, I could barely eat their cheese quesadillas. Think about that. Anyway my Easy Mac diet had me drop a **** ton of weight. Then I had my seizure when I got back I think in February. One of the meds I'm on now as a result gives me a ****ing wicked sweet tooth. Back up up to 240. (I'm 6'1"/6'2" ftr). It's literally impossible to buy anything but socks and shoes (I've always bought my hats big. Just because I never know what I'm gonna do with my hair) when your weight fluctuates like so. Think about this. I joined the Army at 18 a decade ago. Height hasn't changed at all. Guess how much I weighed when I enlisted??

    All Things North Korea Thread

    The Korean War doesn't get enough love. The Communists basically conquered the entrie peninsula, we hadn't given a **** about Korea one way or another (I wonder would have happened if the South had just voted Communist) but after China, all of a sudden Korea mattered. So the Soviet Union was throwing some temper tantrum at the UN and were boycotting some ****. Fine. They weren't there to veto anything so we actually built a UN Army to fight the North. Script gets flipped, ee finally get our **** together and take over damn near the entire peninsula. Then out of no where China comes in with like 2 billion soldiers and blah blah blah, the war ends right where **** was before it started. Except a **** ton of people died for the 38th Parallel.

    Man those were the days. How many are still around from then? Me,you, Mboyd (Try the Beal!), Destino, BRAVEONTHEWARPATH, Vishal I think (No Excuses now--man me and him were tight as **** then. Went to a few Wiz and Nats games. Still not sure why he cut me off), skinfan2k (though he wasn't a Wiz fan then). Who am I sleeping on? I remember folks like hands11 and twenty-eight but I don't think they post anymore. I know hands doesn't.

    Is there something they can do to counter that and return to the style and ways of the 80's? Maybe make the goal bigger? Or do people prefer hockey today?

    To completely flip the topic, been watching this new show Evolution of Evil. Mentioned it in the TV thread. Basically little one-hour mini biographies on the evil dictators of the 20th Century. Six episodes so far. In order... 1. Qaddaffi (no idea why they started with him) 2. Hitler 3. Stalin 4. Tojo 5. Mao 6. Saddam I'm sorry but Sadam might be the most evil man of the 20th Century. I mean don't get me wrong, the rest of those are some real pieces of ****, some monsters. But the **** they did, they did for a reason. I mean even the Holocaust had a longtime political doctrine behind it (antisemitism). Saddam on the other hand just did **** to do ****. Because he could. Like Stalin is just short of Satan starving millions of Ukrainians to death. But I don't think he got pleasure out of it. Saddam was basically jerking off to gassing the Iranians or Kurds (something not even Hitler ever did, use chemical weapons--though I've never gotten a sufficient answer for why not. Especially when **** flipped against him in Russia.)

    I just don't get hockey. I don't get why Ovie is the first player and only player to score more than 60 goals in the 21st Century when it was done 25 times in the 80's and 90's. I asked a HUGE Caps fan I know (my Stepdad) why Gretzky almost scored 100 goals and now 50 is a big deal. He said back then the goalies wore **** for equipment, that they are so much better today. But last week, no lie, I was actually watching replays of Edmonton Finals games from the 80's on the NHL Network or whatever. Goalies didn't seem that much differently equipped then they are now. The game just seemed so much faster, so much smoother and fluid. If they played like that today, it would definitely be easier for me to get into hockey finally.

    Just watching some documentary to kill some time before heading back out. Talking about the coming of the Age of the Bomber, starting with the civil war in Spain. Got to the Luftwaffe and said Goering ****ed up by thinking tactically with their bombers (smaller, dive bomber types, not the long-range, giant flying fortress types like you saw with the Allies) and not strategically. That's the context of the question. I mean I know what they're saying, just the wording threw me off

    That was all Abe Pollin, you know that. Knowing he wasn't long for this world and saying **** it, it's not going to work, it's a long shot at best, but it's our only shot. Abe gave us **** for years, that was a selfish move, but hey, he did so much for this city, single handedly revitalized an entire section of a small city (the city itself, not the larger metro area) and he told the GOAT to go **** himself to save the team. That was some balls. I'll never bash Abe. Not now anyway. But yeah, my interest in the Skins is the weakest it's been in my quarter-century of legit Fandom. I don't know man. It's just a combination of things. I just have no hope. And taking a guard 5th overall and watching him get absolutely manhandled ...where am I supposed to be getting hope from? Just having a guy with the title GM doesn't give me hope. I mean goddamn I'm currently more apathetic than I ever was about the Bullets/Wiz. You've been there with me on them too. Think about that. I mean damn. Any lower and I'm not a fan anymore (that'll never happen)

    I remember about 2010 to last year, parents had a house where in the basement you could go out these sliding doors that led to this area under a deck. If there was a TV show that made people face their biggest fears head on (I'm sure that's been done and I'm just brain farting on the show) this would be THE perfect place for someone scared of spiders. I mean it was just Holy ****. So one time me and my brother are visitimg. My brother smokes weed, I can't stand it. But I'm just chilling with my brother and we decide that Spiderland would be the place FOR HIM to go to smoke in peace and we'll be ok if we just stay close to each other and don't venture too far from the door. We're chilling and I look down and in the corner of the sliding door there's this huge Web with the biggest Black Widow (do you capitalize the name of a species in a writing like this? Like would I write Lion? Really look forward to the awesome answers I'll get) Anyway by far the biggest and I've seen one about ten times. So my brother starts geeking out and I know instantly I'm alone on this. Not scared. Just geeking

    Best mobile video games? I want something outside Candy Soda Crush and Angry Birds 2 (just came out, am enjoying, but really just now of the same). PC games for me: Civilization games, SimAnt, Maniac Mansion 2: Day of the Tentacle (God what a great game), X-Wing and then X-Wing vs Tie Fighter, and then I absolutely LOVED the Sierra Front Page Sports football and baseball games. I wish I could meet someone who played those games. Platform: RPG and Action-Adventure games (think God of War). My favorite game ever and what I think is the best game ever: Chrono Trigger) So yeah, with all that said, any recommendations would be appreciated. I finally got a great phone and want to take advantage of it (S6 Edge). I ****ing LOVE the camera on this thing. My masterpiece so far
  22. So far that new show on A&E about rookie CO's just starting out their careers is--again, so far--the best, most realistic and informative show on prison life. I think it's called "Behind Bars". Ťhe only thing missing is and will always be the sadistic, sociopathic veteran CO's with the Personalities and emotional and mental makeups that made the SS and death camps possible. They're few and far between but their existence almost overrides everything and everyone else and sets the tone of life. They'd never agree to do the show if that would be shown. That said, they do show the douche rookie CO's and the inmates telling them to kick rocks, eat ****, **** off and that just because they have a badge on it doesn't mean they can talk and treat people however they want. They're still fresh enough that they aren't confident enough to be the psychopaths some of the vets are. You can see who has it in them. And I hope people take something away from them hiring that tiny little girl and letting her run an entire unit (140 prisoners vs her). I think it's called Behind Bars: Rookie something's. Really recommend it. (Really outside of sports and random movies I record from the movie channels, I'm not sure I watch anything not on A&E, the Military Channel (or w/e the hell it's officially called now. Changed their name like four times now. My only complaint with them is that they spend waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much time on WWII. Would love to see some self-produced stuff on other wars. Like the war for the control of Russia after the Communist takeover. Even more unknown,random things. Would love to see some stuff on the Crusades. The invasion of Czecloslovokia and crushing Czech Spring. Anything on tbe Cold War. So on and so forth. Would be so much better than WWII in Color, the Pacific War in Color, Hitler's Rise, Hitler's Colonoscopy...in Color!! And it's funny, all the **** they show about WWII, I'm not sure I've ever heard Tojo's name. So much waisted potential) and Lifetime Channel (they got some weird ****). Go to's... The First 48 (easily the greatest reality show ever created) Intervention (I finally could bring myself to watch it just about 6 months ago. It's excellent. Do wonder about their methods though--see the last thread i started in here) Hoarders and Hoarders: Buried Alive - not sure there has ever been shows with a better look at mental health. I mean it's gross and the animal ones are sickening but I really do think you learn about mental health diseases. It's pretty fascinating. Engineering am Empire - comes on the second History Channel, H2. Hosted by Robocop (seriously, he's some type of history expert (wanna say early-Rennisance Italy is his go to) out of the Uni of Syracuse.) It's a fascinating show. Basically what I want out of the Military Channel, minus the focus on war. If you're a big time history nerd like me, I don't think there's a better show on TV. Killer Kids - one of my Lifetime Channel shows. 253 on DirecTV. As far as the show...**** man. Just ****. History Detectives - on PBS. 26 on DirecTV. These experts get called out to normal folks who have some fascinating random historical item that they found in their great-grandmother's attic when they were clearing it out (for example). They don't know anything about it and want to know more. An example would be like some WWI diary with no name on it. So these experts travel around the country talking to people to put the story behind the item. Cool little time killer. Some other new shows I'm getting into: What History Forgot - the WWII Channel (287 on DirecTV) Bullet Points - WWII Channel. Now this is what I want from them. Reminds me of Engineering an Empire but on wars. Finally got something about Korea. Evolution of Evil - WWII Channel. Nice little one-hour biographical breakdowns of some of the evil men of the 20th Century. So far, in order: Qaddafi, Hitler, Stalin, Tojo (looks like I had a brain fart), Mao last week, I think Saddam is this week and Mussolini after that. Not sure then. But yeah, good show. Triggers: Weapons That Changed the World - maybe I should chill on my ****ing of the WWII Channel (287) because I sure as hell watch a lot of their shows. Actually watched this earlier today. The history of the RPG. I mean how cool is that? American Titans - yup....287. New show. About rich people, how they got there and their top rivalries. First two episodes: "Carnegie vs Frick" and "Rockefeller vs Scott". Interesting. Topics I know absolutely nothing about. Monster in My Family - basically a close family member of a serial killer meets a close family member of one of his victims. Watched it today. John Wayne Gacy's sister and niece met the sister of one of his victims. It's not just them talking to each other. First 50 minutes are the story of the serial killer (Gacy? **** man. Can you imagine how it was before fingerprints, let alone DNA. Imagine Gacy in the year 1500? Horrifying.) and then the last ten minutes are are the meeting and discussion. Hosted by the daughter of some serial killer in Oregon or something. Of course in the 80's. It's amazing how much DNA testing has changed the world. And then I like random miniseries on PBS. think the last one was a three-part series called The Abolitionists about the history of the slavery abolition movement in the US from the early 19th Century up to the Civil War. I'm not sure, maybe someone here knows, but I think all the miniseries fall under the "American Experience" subtitle. Like "The Abolitionists: American Experience" OK so my insomnia, out of Xanax for the next two days (refill), post has ended. Hopefully someone gets something out of it.

    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    Got pulled over by VA State Trooper a few days ago. Was allegedly going 86 in my suped up Prius. He did me a solid just giving me a speeding instead of reckless. A reckless would seriously have ****ed me. Anyway point of this post. As known I probably have more experience with police and other authoritative agencies then anyone on this board. For the first time in my life--and it was the first words out of his mouth--I heard "Before we start, just want to inform you this interaction is being recorded by both audio and video". That's the only solutions to this ****. And the cops shouldn't have a single ****ing problem with it

    LOVED the Clips. What was the song they blew up? Can't j remember got ****. As far as Malice/No Malice. I'm not gonna hate. Do you man. You know what i bet it is with these gangsta rappers going Christian rap, they get an alcohol or drug problem, out partying every night, hit whatever their bottom is, end up hitting up AA/NA find God. Two biggest things in their life now are rap and God. Boom. No Malice. I think I've briefly mentioned my issues before. Funny. I feel more comfortable talking about being a coyote, prison and being a convicted felon than I do issues with drug addiction. I really wonder why that is. One is an active choice to break our laws, make money in an ill-gotten manner where I then hit got caught, went to prison and am marked forever by it. I have absolutely no problem about it. On here anyway. A disease I have though? I could never talk about on here. Why? Anyway, you'll never catch me in an AA/NA meetings. And we can talk about that. If anyone relies and I don't answer, fell asleep on the, early in the "morning".

    Man just had a crazy adventure. Fun. A pre-technology, out-in-the-woods adventure. Just a stupid little thing: trying to get our cat inside (foxes and ****). I really think with all the world-altering technology, our kids and grandkids and so do on are gonna miss out on things like that and that make sad. It's the stupid ass-backkwards **** that make life funny and enjoyable. Technology makes it too easy and streamlined. **** they'll probably have remote control collars or some **** in five years. Press a button they have to come to your front door mat. Some **** like that. Was thinking of my fan favorite movies as a kid and what it'd be mine with today's Technology in it. Best Example I could think up was The Goodies.
